Applications are invited for the Asia Pacific Week Conference 2016 will be held at The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia on June 27 – July 1, 2016. Delegates will be hosted by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific and provided accommodation on campus.
The Australian National University’s Asia Pacific Week is an interdisciplinary conference aimed at high-achieving students from around the world who have an interest in Asia and the Pacific. Now in its sixth year, the 2016 conference explores the theme ‘Forward Thinking‘.
This year’s Asia Pacific Week Conference returns for its sixth year to explore the theme ‘Forward Thinking’ to examine what the future holds for the Asia Pacific region. In a time dubbed as the ‘Asian Century’, the rapid pace in which the region has transformed is also dogged by rising threats and challenges that affect the development and progress of the region. Are there patterns of continuity that may be drawn from an examination of the past? How do we seek to manage unprecedented challenges such as Climate Change?
The complexities of these questions demand all hands on deck and that innovative approaches are born.
For this reason, this year we invite delegates from all over the world who are passionate about the Asia Pacific and future leaders in the region, to engage in a dialogue about the path ahead. Distinguished academics, high-ranking diplomats and policymakers in these discussions will join them.
Eligibility: Delegates must be a current student at a university.
Delegates will have the opportunity to form global networks with other international delegates, leading academics and high-ranking officials. They will be provided full access to highly interactive and thought provoking panels, free accommodation and all meals throughout the week. There is no conference fee.
